Linsey
I really like this poem. My friend knows I know and don't find it amussing, he tries to cover it up w. colange and gum and stuff like that. I can always tell when he has been smoking because of the smell or his eyes or the way he acts. This poem has really touched me in many ways. U did a great job on this and touched many keep it up!

bristol
i liked you poem
maria
sometimes when we care about somebody so much we except things they do even if their harming themselves. ive known a lot of people that have been addicted to drugs including myself and its a big mistake. i really like your poem. good luck.
Denitsa
i did like the poem indeed. perhaps mainly because i've been through this stuff and i know your inner feelings. the only difference is that the boy never let me in his world. i wish i could understand it too. just as you do:)
halie
I vote it because it has happened to me befor! I feel the poem is great.
Jessica
Don't give up on people after they try stuff, they still have a soul, sometimes they are doing it to feel better, if you show them that other things can make them feel much better without getting them into trouble or making them depressed they might just stop. A lot of people who really carred about me just acted like i had killed someone. What they didn't realize was that i was slowly killing myself. Reach out, you will be answered, you could save your friends.
Amanda

heather
this poem was really good. i know exactly how u feel. not to sound like a copycat or nething, but i'm going thru the same thing with one of my close friends. he's recently moved back to town and has already started the history in the making.
Krystal
I love this poem because my boyfriend does the same exact thing to me all the time and he knows how i feel about it but all he cares about is himself and he says he cant stop. I think he is very immatuure and needs to grow out of it. Thank u soo much for posting this because it made me realize that i am not the only girl out there with the same problem! Bets of luck to you!
Jazmin
I love the way that you describe the way you feel and to know how you feel. I wish that my friend would stop smoking but it's just to hard for her and if she does stop, it's only for a day at the least. I support your poem my friend and hope her boyfriend will stop
cassie

Renee
Your poem said alot about how you feel and it's just fantastic to see people who have the futs to do that. I was going throgh the same thing I know how much it hurts and you seem to trust them and they do this to you well you are brave and I'm glad there are people like you who have the courage to write what they feel. luv the poem keep it up.
Zombie
I know what you mean by this poem (being into a bit of drugs myself) It's happened to me with not only my boyfriend but my best female friend. Well I told them both how I felt (at seperate times) My boyfriend just laughed and my 'best' friend told me I wasn't a true friend. Talk about killing me instantly! That night I had to cry myself to sleep and when I woke up I recieved a phone call.They told me that my boyfriend had died from an over dose of acid. It gets worse. My friend got sent to juvee about a month later and she strangled herself to death with her shoelace strings. I'm only 15 and I've lost two people I care about deeply. Because I told them how I felt? No! Because I didn't tell them soon enough.and I regret not saying anything sooner.
Toshua
Gosh this poem is exactly what i am going through i am dating this guy and i have been with him for 3yrs. and i just love him so much but he started getting into drugs and i got upset and told him that if he did'nt stop i would leaveso he told me he would stop but he did'nt he just did'nt do it as much as he used to things arnt as bad a s they used to be between us yes he still smokes weed but when i met him and feel in love with him i excepted everything about him even if it was wrong i could'nt just walk away so we are working on this issue and i see how hard it is to drop the habit but i have faith in him! thankyou this poem really ment alot to me:)
debbie
I really like this poem i know what it is saying i have had a lot of boyfriends that who does that and it really hurts that they do that. i just broke up with one that was doing that.but i really like your poem.
L.

paige
i had this same problem with my ex but his drug wasn't pot it was K. he told me for months that he quit and i caught him one day sniffing a line and i just burst out in tears. very good poem.
Christine
Kara, I think that your poem is great. I totally understand where you are coming from when you explained it. I am having the same problems.
Rachel
im goin to show my friend she is goin through this at the mo and its really good.
kristina
That poem really meant alot to me. A lot of my closest guy friends do that. I mean they do it a lot. It is a "hobby" for them. My best friend does it every single day. I care for him tons, an dso does his girlfriend. ut his girlfriend doesnt really care she promotes its, by doing it with him. But i worry about him, i know it is going to get him no where, but i try my best. The best thing to do is just try your best to cope with him, and slowly help him out, cuz it will hurt him, but if he doesnt want the help dont kill yourself over it!
Kat
Very well written & sad!
alida
I love this peopm because i can really relate to what you are telling the one you love..i was in this situation and now im giving him a second chace because he got help..i hope it works out for you..if this poem is about a personal experience
Slinky
It's a cool poem, Shows alot of emotion. Just one problem,, There are no known deaths related to cannabis itself, so o.d.ing is improbable. but depending on the person he may go on to harder drugs, leading to an addiction. Slinky :-)
sunny
this is very good. it is also sad and i know how you feel,it has happened to me.
Bianca
I'm sorry this is happening. He probably really loves you but doesn't understand what's going on.
jess
that was really good. some of my friends are into drugs and i just get it they jurt so many ppl but they just don't see it
Kati
I've been through this exact same thing before just recently and when I read this poem I could relate to exactly what she was saying.
jennifer
this same thing happened with me and my ex. he smoked out every day and he said it made him feel better. what was i, chicken liver or something. i could make him feel the same way the pot did but he never gave me a chance. he promised he would quit but never did. he just never called me when he was high and i knew what he was doing behind my back. i would pop over unexpected and would catch him. he say he wasn't doing it but i could smell it around him and on his breath. Girl no one knows y people do drugs but i can tell u this. don't let it ruin ur life. keep strong and things good will come ur way. ur ex needs help. don't be the one to drag urself into it. give him #'s to call and stand back to see if he really does want to give it up for u. if not it's his loss. =)
Jessica
I have watched people die of o.d's and I hope that you can find a way to help your friend
Anna
i think that is a very well written poem people who do drugs also bother me
jennifer
i think this poems is really great because of the stuff that happenings to th girl i feels so sorry for girls that have to go through things like this. this poems is the best yet!
Dorothy
I thought this was a great poem, and it's very realistic, because many people go through the same thing. They get caught in a tug o' war between their morals and the one that they love.
Kaycee
I think that this is a very good poem. This is exactlly how I feel somtimes about my ex-boyfriend! I think that I am just going to have to read this to him. I would rate this as a 10. Out of 1 through 10 that is. Good job and keep up the good work.
Monica

Kara
I think that this is a wonderful poem and it is beautifully written. Thank you for posting it.
Hannah
Although I've never had this experience before, I really related with what you wrote. This poem is very vivid, and it had a very natural flow.
J-Bone
This poem is great. I was just like the guy she writes about. My girlfriend sent me this poem and told me how it is. Now I am straight. And I can look in the mirror and like what I see. This poem helped me realize how much people care about u. Even at the lowest point in your life.
Tricia

julz

amanda
